The Children Are (The Consumers Of) The Future

Album: Searching For The Hows And Whys (2008)
  • Sam Duckworth (aka Get Cape Wear Cape Fly) told I Like Music that he had fun laying down this track: '"The Children Are [The Consumers Of] The Future' was another track I had a lot of fun making, simply because of how we did it. A lot of that track was done at 5am after the Christmas party, we'd all stayed up and had a lot going on in the studio and we just decided to go back and whack a few bits on the tracks and a lot of the crazy distorted horns we recorded early in the morning and then, during the day, fed them through delays and messed around with the sounds we'd made. It was a couple of days at the end of a fairly long stretch of recording and it was just good fun to let our hair down and experiment and just play, which I think gives that track a sense of fun and a sense of interest."
